  1. Im new to the modelling i made myself a workable car but i want to make turn in out position with workable hatch and when the person turn out they would be able to shoot (FFV). Is there any tutorial or something ? So far what i searched i couldnt find anything. Any help would be welcome thx :)
  2. I want to present and test a little web service I made that allows you to convert binarized p3d files in ODOL format to editable p3ds in MLOD format. Before anybody starts crying: This service is intended for educational purposes, so people can learn how stuff is done from examples. It specifically is not made to make stealing of content of others easy. Hence, the conversion creates slightly distorted meshes for complex visible LODs in order to render them useless for the purpose of redistributing the work of others. This is not allowed unless the author gave you permission or an appropriate license was provided with the original model. Here is the service URL: https://odolconverter.t-db.de/ If you encounter any bugs or problems, please let me know. So, enjoy :) UPDATE: I moved the service to a new server and url.
  3. Hello guys, I am new to modelling here but I am having a problem with my geomtry lods. I made a basic model (PC case) and I am able to see it in game. BUT, My geometry lods don't work. I can drive, walk and shoot through my basic model. I followed a tutorial on youtube and made a basic shape that outlines the model (a cube). The shape has no non convexities and I did find compunents+ add a mass to the geometry lods. The author of the video says everything looks good, and that it should work, but it just doesn't and ends up like this. https://gyazo.com/6c88f9c9807626fa9f897edebfdae96c I used mikeroe's pboProject to build the PBO and also tried using addon builder. Still no luck. Here is a link to my files: http://www.mediafire.com/file/4yu6k1jixv43ixt/JAF_pccase.rar Any help would be appreciated as I am pulling my hair out right now Thanks for reading! EDIT: I got it to work ONLY when it is under CfgVehicles but it refuses to work under CfgMagazines? Could anyone please add to this?
  4. Hi guys i have some questions about creating a custom building for arma 3. Did i need to model a new door with hinges, handles if i want to put a door in my building ? Windows need a model too ?
  5. Hey guys, I ve seen a Clip with the unsung mod. Someone create an epic battlebus and I want to do this on my own. The Normal way is to merge objects with the attachto command in the eden editor. But I think it will take much time to get the right position of the objects. Now my question. Can i merge all the objects i need in the o2 together? My truck should have some static mgs a flak or something else and sandbags on the Plattform. I want that the vehicle is a single unit what i can place again and again in my missons. I am sorry but i am a greenhorn in modelling. I will learn it to bring myself to the next level of creating cool stuff for arma 3. So thanks for your help :)
  6. Hey guys, I am making a new model (one of my first ever) and I am trying to simulate a translucent red glass for the back lights on the car like in this picture. https://gyazo.com/c2b99acb7abae508fd05fdc3f085c798 But this is what I end up with. https://gyazo.com/03975503ee0f4826570086bbf157a1d0 This is the face properties. https://gyazo.com/1049b7a39af6a82d6ce3558685608f9e Any help would be appreciated as I am currently pulling my hair out. Thanks for reading!
  7. I have been trying to animate the door but cant seem to get a few things right, i have read this over and over but cant figure out what i had done wrong, is there any way someone has a tutorial on a step to step basis on how to do it, would be much grateful :)
  8. So, I'm new to modelling and made a test building. I got all the geometry, phys and shadow lods working nicely, but my object seems transparant? Here is a gif of what it looks like. https://gyazo.com/cbedb41b5a7a690b1345d6a3769dd7ae Help would be much appreciated, thanks.
  9. Hi guys, I'm wondering how to change the particles (and the sound) that fly around when you shoot at a certain object. Per default it always looks and sounds like you're shooting the ground. Thank you for your help! :-)
  10. Hey, I'm working on the config of a model I created but I'm having trouble with the config of the Physx, more precisely the speed. I am aware of the normal reason for this, being that the memory points for the wheels aren't all the same diameter but that isn't the case, the warrior was stuck at about 12-13km/h when this was the case with the sprockets at a different size but after fixing this the new max speed is a whopping 8 km/h! picture of the memory LOD for the axis & bounds: physX.hpp link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_clmWh1yXm2z_BAag3cgdt9eqgLZv-DU model.cfg link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YTLLd0_N6zpp9vNuSeWGRRM9dN2k8ABo The only thing I can think of might be the mass? The mass for the geometry is 25400.0 and the mass for the Geometry PhysX is 6.45. Pictures of both: Any help is very very appreciated!

    help for the texture

    hello, I just started to create addon for weapon 3 but i can not build textures for hd buildings, like photoshop programs thank you for the help. sorry for my English.
  12. Hi All, I'm busy working through the Process of getting a vest into Arma. After slogging through problems with my RVMAT and the fabric looking way too "Metallic" I stumbled upon this problem: Some weird looking pixels on only one specific material surface of the model. They definitely aren't there on the texture: I figured I'm maybe missing something important in my RVMAT file, so here it is: Anyone encountered this before? Thanks in Advance, RS.
  13. This is my first post, so I'll begin by apologising for any rules I may break or any syntax issues. Secondly, Im Trying to remodel an entire Arma 3 unit for a mod I am creating. The model was imported to Object builder no worries, I then took my time to follow every tutorial I could get my hands on regarding rigging and setting the unit up to be a playable unit in game. Here is a list of everything that has been done up till now (Without knowing any extra steps): -LODs and Texture set up and working, tested in engine and in game. -Geometry working. -Memory components set up (Now these memory points were used for the Arma 2 example). -Weighting selection to allow for animations (So tedious). - model.cfg and config set up correctly (hopefully). Now when I load it into game, everything works fine, the class path, the textures, I can even control as player, and he moves around as normal. EXCEPT, the model remains in the default "T" stance and about half way through the floor. Does anyone know anywhere I could look, or give me any information on how I can make this work. (Please let me know if you need any more details, like images or my config and model.cfg)
  14. Hey, does anyone know how to deselect vertices in Object Builder? I couldn't find anything on the internet. Thanks in advance :)
  15. Hey guys, I've got 2 separate issues with a model of mine. I made a ball and I basically want it to roll down a hill with Physx. This all works, partly. This is the p3d with textures: https://puu.sh/sPkxb/a71ff2427e.zip config: class ref_ball_big : Land_DuctTape_F { author = ""; simulation="thing"; scope = 2; displayName = "Big ball"; vehicleClass = "r_ent"; hiddenSelections[] = {""}; hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"\ref_losttemple\ballbig\ballbig_co.paa"}; model = "ref_losttemple\ballbig\ballbig"; armor = 100; destrType = "DestructMan"; mass = 500; }; I'm new at this, and I've been reading up a lot and making progress. First issue: Only after I enabled the physx (setVelocity) the ball collides with players/objects. As soon as it comes to a stop it doesn't have any form of collision. I have a Geometry with Component01 and mass. It's fully closed. What am I missing? Fixed this issue. Apparently I didn't build the last pbo with the component. Second issue: I'm completely new to texturing. Somethings wrong with the texture of the ball, some parts aren't colored correctly and appear to 'shine through'. This is probably because I messed up either the rvmat or the ballbig_nohq.paa. The mapping and everything is correct (done with blender), it's just that somehow the colors are a bit off.Image of the ball. What I did now is just save the ballbig_co.paa and nohq.paa, and I'm guessing that is wrong. I don't really need the ball to look fancy so I don't mind the ball having no structure at all (from my understand that's what the nohq does. What would be the best approach to this? I've tried looking up what the different stages mean, but I'm having a hard time finding any good documentation on it. The arma wiki is a bit vague on this. Rvmat (also in the zip): Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Hi, I have been making a custom building and am on the final few stages of it, However I cant seem to get the windows to work (I have never done windows before and am a bit lost) If anyone could link me to a guide on how to do windows that would be much appreciated or tell me what I need to do in the comments.

  17. Hello there! I'm looking for a clear list of which different "texture layers" (or maps) to make for my model and I would like some advise for where to look for tutorials etc. As of now, I know of these types of maps: Diffuse (General color) Opacity (Opacity, greyscale) Bump map (White is "pop-out") Normal map (Something like bumpmap, but different?) Specular map (Shinyness) Glow map (Glow in the dark, used on chemlights?) Reflection map (The how well if reflects other objects) source for this list. When texturing, is it correct that maps I assign to the model in blender, will be carried over to Arma through Object builder? - In that case, I should be able to use general blender-texturing tutorials as reference, right? As of now, this video is the best explanation of realistic texturing in blender, I have found. Any kind of pointing-towards-where-I-can-learn-more is much appreciated! // JustMathew
  18. Welcome if you are a complete Noob in making models for games I will teach you a few things ive learned, please feel free to add information on this topic for others to expand their knowledge ( 3d models only, no texturing, SDK, sound). 1) you will need a 3d editing program, (there are two programs which I have worked with and that is 3ds max 2014 and Blender.) you may be asking yourself or me down in the comment section, "what is the difference between 3ds max and blender" well the difference between them are very minor in what they can accomplish however what makes Blender my preferred tool is that blender is completely open sourced meaning that anyone can improve upon blender and its tools with scripts they even include all the good stuff later in future updates without the need to search on websites for them! another advantage to blender is that its completely free no bs licencing, student version ect ! it does everything that 3ds max does and more. tons of free tutorials on youtube for you to learn, dont forget blender.com and similar websites have great step by step tutorials encase you forgot how to do something but be warned blender has had many revisions done to it which has changed some things around what ive found is that anything newer then 2012 should be relevant to the current version of blender. :) 2) I know you want to open Blender and start fooling around with making your model but first you will need to educate yourself. here are some great youtubers who are really great at what they do.

Ok so finally you are ready to start making models in blender, first is to choose what you want to make... I recommend that you should choose a weapon first. ok so once that is done start looking for high res images on the internet which encompasses a wide amount of angles of what you are trying to model the more the better... start working on the left or right side first depending on the reference image you are using. be advised that some weapons have varying detail depending on a number of conditions for instance the SVD has a number of differences depending on year of production, the SVD 1963 model first production has a 3 holed hand guard on each side, receivers vary on production and country manufacture there are two types of military receivers type one with lighting cuts, type 2 which are smooth without magazine cutouts on the outside, there are 2 versions of flash hiders on standard SVD one a common and the other a rare early production for the 1963 to 64 models. for receiver covers there are 4 types of covers, the most common is the soviet model ribbed with side pinchs on the rear, 2) ribbed cover without pinchs, 3) angle cuts) 4 irak model which is distinctly different from all other types again I would like to stress the differences between weapons can vary from a simple screw head found on the left side to something such as a shortened barrel version of the same weapon... Start making your Highpoly gon model, a high polygon is used for baking the models detail in a low polygon model which is used in game. a good rule of thumb is to make anything that is made in one piece to remain in once piece on your model ( for instance a romanian akm has a ugly wooden forgrip made out of one piece this should be reflected in your model , however sometimes it can be beneficial do the complete opposite however this is rare. please do not make a model out of one single mesh this is a common rookie mistake! Low Polygon models are the in game meshes, the point of low poly models is to create efficient models for the game which reduce resource usage drastically, faux detail is baked on to the low poly model using the high poly/ floating geometry in the form of texture maps. low polygon models are in simple terms the silhouette of the model... Tips Always try to model your high polygon in Quads, tris are ok if no alternative can be made however can create issues. Use Mirror or symmetry modifier to reduce work load Use snapping for make repeating geometry Use the subdivision modifier when you are making your high poly this will reduce work load by a large amount and create a nice smooth model. Use Support edges when modeling a cutout such as a hole in a hand guard. this will make sharper detail when sub dividing modeling something cylindrical will always be close to scale when you use a reference image :D Dont be afraid of using floating geometry for recessed screw heads, hand guard cut outs and a few other things this will drastically reduce time in modeling your high poly model. Things like stamped lettering and fine checkering on a pistol like a 1911 can be done in Photoshop or similar programs wtih little headache, make repeating checkering in blender and bake them on a plain and use the normal maps textures in photoshop. Create an archive of meshes which can be used for future projects such as bolt heads, hex, slotted, Philips ect... Do try not to model things which will never be seen, for instance the internally trigger assemble of a weapon will never be seen... however a bolt head on a bolt of an automatic weapon will never be seen by the average player or if only for less then a second so go easy on the detail and try not to stress yourself on such useless detail. refer to your reference images ever so often Make constant saves of your work with different titles this is very easy to do in blender I will be adding images in the future. feel free to add content to the topic and never give up on doing something because its hard... if anything keep pushing or try again another day :) Low Polygon models are the in game
  19. Greetings, I'm making a headgear addon (already my 3d one) and all of a sudden I'm experiencing a problem: I've made a model, made .p3d file, created all necessary selections (as in my previous addons which were okay, after experiencing the problem I tried binarizing the previous models again and got the problem which I hadn't had before), assigned textures, made the modelconfig, binarized it, made the cfgWeapons class, the headgear item is present in game, but when I put the headgear on the player it's not visible at all, no shadows or anything. And it's not the "autocenter" problem. However, when I take off the item and put it on the ground, the model is visible, everything's fine, with all textures. I suspect it has something to do with the updates (the mods I made earlier, in May-September 2015 were fine) but not really sure. UPDATE: nevermind, please remove this thread. I apologize for posting it here, already found the problem -- good old "model" instead of the "uniformModel" fail :(
  20. basically there's a lot of lacking info , or its spread out to a confusing point (for newbs like me). I'm looking for info about everything a to z .. I know its a lot to ask for. my biggest problem is adding bones/skeletons or what ever for moving parts. it seems that if model didn't come with them I'm having problems adding them. I tried to use arma3 sample for lite heli , (add its automation to something eles) , I see it doesn't work that way or I'm missing so info how to. Ive watched all the vids I could find but they mostly deal with animation on solder's any how.. any extra help or links to would be awesome. and if this has been asked for before please just point me to were and this post can be locked. thanks ...
  21. Hi, I've come across an unusual problem, not sure if any of you understand what's going on. I modelled the model in 3Ds Max and imported it into Object Builder but somehow it's changed the topology. It has removed lines where they should be and added them where they shouldn't. I've imported it in as both .3ds and .obj I have also imported a tri only version but to receive the same problem.
